Light Exercise and harvesting

The other day, we went for a brisk walk just around the corner from where we live. We know there are one or two red cherry plum trees there, but not having seen any blossom in Spring, wondered if there would be any on the tree!

There are not many, but after 10 minutes collecting and a brisk walk back home, we have managed to pick another 2lb in various stages of ripeness:
The colour of the ones on the left are those that are fully ripe. The half yellow ones and the paler red will be left on the windowsill for just one day to ripen them enough for eating/cooking!

My few broad beans are ready for harvesting, so using the mushroom risotto recipe (from my recipe tabs), we changed the amount of mushrooms for fresh de-skinned broad beans and mint:
It was fabulous!
